Tele-audiometry – a ShoeBOX solution

Access to hearing assessment is a global challenge. In relation to the global burden of hearing loss World Health Organisation’s (WHO’s) recent estimate (2013) is that 360 million people in the world have disabling hearing impairment. Two-thirds of these people...

New Visual Reinforcement Audiometry solution from Interacoustics

Interacoustics is happy to release VRA Pure, a software version of the digital Interacoustics VRA Screen solution.

Automated audiometry: in conversation with the creator of AMTAS®, Robert Margolis

As automated audiometry becomes more widespread for busy clinics and tele-audiometry, Laura Prigge from GSI interviews Dr Robert Margolis to discuss his automated method for testing auditory sensitivity (AMTAS®). What motivated you to think of automated audiometry? When I was...

Whale hearing tests through evoked potential audiometry

Covering over 70% of the earth’s surface and reaching known depths of 11km, the world’s oceans tick the box for an extreme environment. What do we know of the impact of environmental noise on the deep-sea dwellers of this habitat?...

Basic Audiometry Learning Manual - Second Edition

The challenge of teaching students pure tone audiometry is that whilst core principles can be delivered in the classroom, a deeper understanding of audiological testing only arises from practice. Yet, if left unguided in this practice, trainee audiologists can fail...

Speech audiometry tests in elderly patients with mild cognitive impairment

This paper caught my eye because, with our ageing population, mild cognitive impairment and dementia are a major, growing problem. We know that ageing causes a multitude of medical and social issues. So it seems wise to investigate the effects...

Audiometry Training with Virtual Patients

Otis – the virtual patient is a simulation software that increases significantly quality and efficiency in audiologist training. Otis simulates different hearing defects so that audiometry can be practised without burdening patients. The software intelligently detects possible measurement errors. It...

Pure tone audiometry, simplified

Reshape the way you perform hearing tests with the hearTest certified (IEC 60645-1), tablet-based audiometer. This cost-effective solution uses calibrated headphones and supports extended high frequency (8-16 kHz) testing. hearTest allows automated/facilitated testing, real-time quality control and secure cloud-based data...

Use of automated audiometry for faster patient access to audiology services?

Manual audiometry has long been the gold standard for establishing hearing thresholds. In recent years, a number of automated audiometry applications have reached the market. In this article, a team from Ireland have put a version of automated audiometry to...

Development of the iAudiometer™

Why the iAudiometer™? We have developed six versions of a new software called iAudiometer™ that performs an array of different audiometric tests using an iPad with standard transducers (TDH-39 headphones, B-71 BC, aural domes, or inserts) (Figure 1; Table 1)....

Innovations in remote/teleaudiology patient care

Audiometry remains the gold standard in hearing evaluations. Changes in the delivery of audiometry remain a key challenge in providing a telehealth approach to hearing care. The team at Lyon University Hospital validated an innovative approach to solving this challenge,...
